It was a little gloomy this AM, but the ride home weather was perfect. Sunny, 80 degrees, light east wind – couldn’t be better.
As I was waiting at the light at Grant and State, a tall, thin, 50-ish guy came flying up on the sidewalk on my right and jumped the curb in front of me to get in the bike lane. I saw that as a challenge to stay with him (despite his long-legged thinness). I held his wheel up the hill on Grant and on to Salisbury up to Lindberg where I took a left while he continued north.

P.S. I was walking back from a meeting after lunch, and I crossed State Street mid block. As I stepped up over the curb, a kid on a road bike came screaming past me on the sidewalk. We nearly got very well acquainted.
